Max Pope, the young soulful songwriter from Crystal Palace and raised in Brighton, now shares his new single, “Foot Of The Hill”, and an accompanying animated lyric video, animated by Jonny Sanders and featuring drawings by the artist’s mother, Katherine Richards. The track is the latest to be shared from his forthcoming EP, UP, due for release on 27th September 2019 via Caroline International.

Max said the following about the music and video: “The image of a house falling down is a powerful one for me. The end of an era, of a lifetime. Decades of people who have been and gone and all existed between four sturdy walls. Buildings are strong and permanent, it’s difficult to imagine them crumbling down. When they do, they just seem sad and unexpectedly fleeting. When I was growing up I realised that the same impermanence can apply to people. My darling mother made the drawings for this video and it was a joy to collaborate with her, having shared so many of my life’s early experiences.

Following a sold out show at London’s Paper Dress Vintage, Max Pope will play an EP launch show at London’s Servant Jazz Quarters on 26th September 2019 – tickets are available here.

Max Pope creates music that stops you in your tracks, making you see the universal experiences of life, love, loss, human connections and isolation in a new way. His songs, filled with colourful characters from his life and imagination, always capture his unique perspective on the world and demonstrate a gift for storytelling that goes far beyond his years. A musical contemporary of Flo Morrissey and Loyle Carner, Max studied at the BRIT school and currently works as a gardener, work he cherishes for helping him feel connected to the world.
